I mean, I have to say...I think the resorts board is more appropriate for that type of discussion, because ultimately it becomes a great planning tool which provides the ability for people to ask other "real people" questions about the resort and get a variety of opinions and perspectives. But I do agree the mods have final say in what should go where.

Ultimately, though, why reinvent the wheel? The Jambo thread was one of the most widely posted to threads in the resorts forum.....could it just be moved over so the posters who "dwelled" there can continue to use it? And maybe the "official" (or unofficial...whichever it is) FAQ could contain a link to it?

Just my humble suggestion and 2 cents.
I think that's a GREAT idea!

The problem with chatting in a resort thread is the people that come looking for resort information and have to wade through posts just chatting. There may be a gem of information in the post but that is a lot of posts to look through.
Understandable. And even though some of the best sources of info will probably be the posters in the Jambo thread (assuming it reopens), at least those who venture there looking for info will know what they're getting into....

Someone PM kimmar and see if she's OK with reopening the thread on the community board. I hope she is!

I think it woudl be great to keep the other open as a chat thread. I agree that there was a lot of great info in there but really hard to find among all the chatter. the chatter is great to read when you want a little more insight but we definately need the FAQ's one for a more to the point thread.

I don't disagree, entirely. It was a VERY long thread. A victim of it's own popularity, informativeness, and dual nature.

We had that before (one FAQ thread, and the Jambo thread)...but the FAQ thread pretty much "died" and was left unattended. You'd see one post every month or so from someone who would stumble across it with a question. That's why everyone came to the Jambo thread to get their questions answered: It was active and the regular participants knew the resort and visited often, so people got responses (something that wasn't true of the old FAQ thread because it would quickly drop off the page), and got them rather quickly.

In addition, they got VERY recent info, by and large, rather than some of the the outdated stuff that was in the old FAQ...like the concierge views at the hotel being mixed (they're not anymore) or the outdated list of activities (they've changed quite a bit since the old FAQ was listed). The old FAQ didn't even TOUCH on the DVC piece of the resort. And no FAQ can really provide the varying perspectives that a good sized group of frequent guests will provide on varying aspects of the resort.

I think there's room for both threads. And if the more "Verbose" Jambo thread needs to be in the community section, in the mods opinion, so be it.

That's not a good thing right?? I enjoyed reading it but could not keep up. It was too busy trying to get by all of the regular posters and a lot of long signatures. I think it's wonderful that so many people love AKL, as I do. I enjoyed reading it and seeing all the new information. I also hope that anyone who can help answers the questions on this thread, will come over since I don't know everything and up-to-date info is always wanted. I remember tryign tomplan my first stay at AKL and that thread helped a lot. Now I started a thread where all the great info gets updated to the first thread as often as I can.

So if you see a question in the initial thread, please IM me or post the answer so I can update the answer. Also the same applies if something changes and you find out about it first or before it is listed. Thank you!

I think the idea of having two AKL threads going is great, so another vote for reopening the Jambo thread as a thread for lively discussions and this thread as a "proper" FAQ thread. However, I would then suggest to rename this thread as the "official" FAQ because that's what it is!

Sorry for posting off topic, I just thought I needed to show support for the idea!

From the Sunrise Safari! Well worth the adventure! It included a great breakfast buffet to. I took it last September. The safari is different than the park ride as you set out very early in the morning at a nice slow pace, no jargon about hunters and stuff, plenty of time to ask the park gudies and time to take photos. My ride took well over an hour

Well, I'm confused (wasn't Jambo Jr. a new thread?), but if it's moving over there then I'll follow along! I have to say that I got tons of information from the Jambo thread -and it was worth reading through all 500 pages (it was at 500 when I started). Took a bit of time but I feel like I know the resort so well, even though I haven't been there yet. So I'm glad that it will continue - and I hope there will be a link to it in the Resort Board.
